Additional Information

By the Noble Daring of Her Sons is a tale of ordinary Florida citizens who, during extraordinary times, were called to battle against their fellow countrymen.
 
Over the past twenty years, historians have worked diligently to explore Florida’s role in the Civil War. Works describing the state’s women and its wartime economy have contributed to this effort, yet until recently the story of Florida’s soldiers in the Confederate armies has been little studied.
 
This volume explores the story of schoolmates going to war and of families left behind, of a people fighting to maintain a society built on slavery and of a state torn by political and regional strife. Florida in 1860 was very much divided between radical democrats and conservatives.
 
Before the war the state’s inhabitants engaged in bitter political rivalries, and Sheppard argues that prior to secession Florida citizens maintained regional loyalties rather than considering themselves “Floridians.” He shows that service in Confederate armies helped to ease tensions between various political factions and worked to reduce the state’s regional divisions.
 
Sheppard also addresses the practices of prisoner parole and exchange, unit consolidation and its effects on morale and unit identity, politics within the Army of Tennessee, and conscription and desertion in the Southern armies. These issues come together to demonstrate the connection between the front lines and the home front.

Jon Sheppard's book is a fantastic contribution to Civil War and Florida history. So little has been written about the troops who served outside of the southernmost state, that anything would be helpful. Sheppard's book, however, is as good as it gets. Accurate in detail and crisply written, it will be the standard work on Florida's AOT soldiers for years to come.
I had just finished a book on the Florida troops in the Army of Northern Virginia and as in that book I was able to place the Florida Regiments in the big picture. Florida units are rarely mentioned even if they are in the thick of a battle. With the Army of Tennessee the Florida units were not united as soon as in Virginia so it was harder to follow them and I am sure harder to research and write about them but Mr Sheppard has done a fine job. Schools, libraries and historians all over Florida need this book.
